I read books because I want to feel; I want to laugh, cry, yell at no one in particular. I want the freedom to experience a range of emotions that aren’t of my doing. That’s also why I write for Harlequin Heartwarming. This is a line where the stories are driven by an emotional payoff; that moment when you clutch your heart and feel the words in your soul.

First Comes Marriage is the story of Meera Malhotra, a woman firmly rooted in her family who grapples with her Indian cultural beliefs, and the permanent ache in her heart that comes from wanting something she’s never had; what we all want---unconditional love.

Meera is engaged to be married to a family friend in London. A marriage arranged between families with ties so strong, breaking them will unravel Meera’s whole world. So what’s she to do when she falls for Jake Taylor? Loving an American cattle rancher is not in the plans for this vegetarian.

I hope you’ll enjoy the fusion of Western romance with epic Bollywood style drama. There’s more coming in the next few months. I’ll be posting extras such as a chapter music play list of country and Indian music, recipes for vegetable curry and Hell’s Bells barbeque. Visit my website for more information.

There will be three more heartwarmings coming after First Comes Marriage; sign up for my newsletter to get freebies, extras, and the insider scoop.


TODAY'S FREE SHORT STORY:

Falling for the Cowboy by Sophia Sasson

Elena Striotikos knows that returning to her boyfriend Dylan Hayes’s hometown to meet his family are the final step to getting what she wants: a marriage proposal. Except Dylan’s crazy town is the exact kind of closed community she grew up in and has spurned…and Dylan’s discovering he’s a cowboy at heart.

But she's already found Mr. Right…

She would rather call her impending nuptials planned than arranged, but she's certain her fiancé is her perfect match. Still, Dr. Meera Malhotra jumps at the opportunity to spend the month before her wedding doing a medical rotation in small-town USA. Getting a taste of independence and improving public health are both part of her plan. Falling for a cowboy? Not so much. Jake Taylor is totally wrong for her, anyway: he raises cattle; she's a vegetarian. He's content with life on the ranch; she's from bustling London and wants to travel. She couldn't possibly throw away everything she's built over something as illogical as love.
